Angee Leeds came to IUPUC in January, 2019, and in nine short months she has made a noticeable impact on the campus, her colleagues, and the students she serves. “Since Angee started at IUPUC she has gone above and beyond in so many different ways,” said Student Financial Services Coordinator, Cassie Sutt. “She truly cares about the students on our campus and wants to help in any way possible.”
Prior to coming to IUPUC, Angee spent 14 years as a youth ministry counselor, and is currently working toward a bachelor’s degree in Ministry and Counseling from Lee University. About a year ago, she decided that it was time for a career change and she applied for the Student Financial Services Representative position at IUPUC. She was glad she did. “From the time that I walked into IUPUC, I knew it was a good fit,” Angee said.
Once hired, Angee quickly discovered that her background in counselling is a perfect fit for the role in which she helps students and families understand the intricacies of financial aid. “I love meeting with students and families, especially making them feel comfortable,” Angee said. She also enjoys the opportunity to go out into the community to present information about financial aid to prospective students and their families.
Born and raised in Jennings County, Angee graduated from Jennings County High School, and currently resides in Scipio. She has been married to her husband, Allan, for 31 years and has two grown children. In her spare time, Angee and her husband enjoy travelling, especially to Florida to spend time with family.
When asked how she felt about receiving the award, Angee responded, “I was so humbled. It’s very affirmative. The team I work with is phenomenal. There has been so much to learn and everyone has been so kind in the transition and learning process.”
Cassie Sutt sums up why Angee is a great representative of our campus and so deserving of this award: “Her passion to help students succeed and to prepare them early for college not only shows at IUPUC, but also in the community.”
